Not sure what this was all about ,,, the exhibits didn't seem to have any connection. Couldn't find anything explaining the history of the fort itself. Only €2 per adult but we were in and out in about 15 minutes

From the outside we were expecting it to be quite interesting inside, there were a couple of rooms with artwork displays that didn't seem to have any connection to the fort. The views from the top were good.

It seemed like an interesting place to visit as part of a trip to Lagos. It looks wel maintained, at least from the outside. Unfortunately it was closed for visit when we were there.

Nice spot very near to everything in Lagos. Next to the beach and a short walk from the historic area and marina. Good place for a short stop.

Nice views of the beaches but very little info on the history of the Forte which would have been nice. Instead there was only strange metal artwork inside. Would have been disappointed if we spent any more than our €2 entry each.

When walking within the City Centre this Forte is located along the water way as you leave the local vendors, it is located very close to many of the vendors selling water experiences as well.

We visited this little building one day as I was craving some culture. However while it was an interesting exhibition there was no information about the building itself which was a little disappointing. The views from the top were great though. There is a very...More

As we had this included in the pass we visited here but apart from the sculptures there is very little to see. Would only take 30 minutes at the most to see it all and that includes time to take photos. Great views though from...More
